Everything you need to know about Safe Ministry Training

Safe Ministry is a journey that starts when you first get involved in ministry to vulnerable people – children, teenagers and adults – and continues for the duration of that ministry.
And so, it is essential that all people involved in Anglican ministry to the vulnerable, including children and teenagers, are thoroughly equipped and trained for that journey with approved Safe Ministry training.

The Anglican Diocese of Sydney is an endorsed training partner under the Safe Church Training Agreement which is a nationally agreed standard for Safe Ministry training. The diocesan Professional Standards Unit is responsible for the administration of this training in the Sydney Diocese.

All people working with children or youth in ministry, including ministers and assistant ministers, are required to complete Safe Ministry Essentials, and then every three years undertake Safe Ministry Refresher training.
